The final novel, Messenger, was a bit different and far shorter. While I liked it, once again, the short length and the shocking ending left me a bit unsatisfied at the end. Young Matty lives in yet another community that, once again, appears to be a utopian one. People can choose what they are, the community learns and grows from one another, and outsiders are welcomed in. However, the surrounding Forest, which has a life of its own, seems to be bringing selfishness and conceit into the village. Just as young Kira found she had a gift, Matty finds that he too is different. When his gift is needed, he is able to step in.
